You spend nearly two weeks in a flooded, batshit covered cave in the dark with 12 of your friends. The world watches while collective heads are scratched wondering how they are going to get you out before the monsoon rains come. You then discover you are to be knocked out so you can get hauled through dangerous ragged caverns without freaking the hell out. You see the light, you are safe, you get your promised KFC, you are so grateful to be alive then your parents tell you…”hey son, you are becoming a monk’. Yep, seems the Wild Boars are about to all become monks as a repayment for the life of the Navy Seal that was lost during the rescue. Sheez, all they ever wanted to do was kick a football around!

Just when you thought it was safe, the Russian nerve agent Novichok has reared its deadly head once again. Two people in Salisbury were infected this week after it is believed they picked up a contaminated item on the street. One of the victims passed away today and the second victim is still fighting for his life. It is believed the pair came in contact with the deadly nerve agent in a park near where a former Russian spy and his daughter were struck down a few months ago. A used cigarette butt has been named as a potential item.
Apparently, in Britain, there has been a massive increase in callouts to help drunken seagulls. It is believed the naughty little scavengers have found themselves a nice pile of brewery waste somewhere. One rescuer complained the birds stunk of alcohol and their van smelled like a pub. Bless. The gulls are sleeping it off at the RSPCA.
For the 13 young people trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand, the news that a Navy Seal has died en route to them must be devastating. While the world collectively holds their breath, a rethink is now on. The group are trapped in a small pocket. The only possible way out is to swim underwater for about 750m. It isn’t a straight swim, they will have to navigate through some narrow passages in the pitch dark. The risky decision to teach the teens and coach, not only to swim but to use diving equipment may have to aborted following the death of the experienced diver. Time is against them as a monsoon is about to hit and with it more torrential rain. This is truly what nightmares are made of. I have my fingers crossed that by some miracle they can be saved.
